Engineers are charged with devising solutions to a myriad of societal challenges. These challenges are not one-size-fits-all, and neither are their optimal solutions. To best serve society, we must educate, graduate, and employ engineers from diverse backgrounds and engage them in equitable and inclusive problem solving with, not just for, the communities they serve.

With examples from her research and leadership roles, Dr. Pearson will present strategies for accomplishing this rooted in her call to REDEFINE engineering education:

RE-image who we see as engineers and what we see as engineering;
DE-silo education and problem solving; and
FINE-tune climate and culture in academia and practice.

This is the first of three seminars hosted by the Civil and Environmental Engineering Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and the Pelham Scholars Program.
